ABSTRACT A case of diabetic foot in a patient with advanced diabetes is presented. The correct diagnostic approach was analyzed based on the reasoned combination of available diagnostic imaging procedures (color-Doppler US, CT-angiography, MR-angiography and digital subtraction angiography) and on the clinician's instances. Angiographic findings contraindicated intravascular treatment. Femorotibial surgical bypass was performed.
